The Japanese MLB The Show Video Game

Those familiar with video game baseball know that the Playstation exclusive MLB The Show franchise is the premiere (and only) sim MLB baseball title available. However in Japan, Konami releases the Pro Yakyuu Spirits game for Sony Playstation consoles that covers the Japanese leagues. It has become an underground hit with baseball fans outside of Asia looking for a different experience, so much so that there are websites devoted to translating the controls into English. Youtube has many videos devoted to the series but these are often buried under a language barrier. For those intrigued here is full gameplay found on the video site from the latest edition displaying the differences between the real and virtual versions of the Japanese and MLB sport.
